THE INSURRECTION IN JAMAICA. [TO THE EDITOR OF THE "
SPECTATOR."] 9 Portugal Street, 13th November, 1865. SIR,—As one whose interests, and therefore it may be whose prejudices, are those of the planters, so severely dealt with in your article on the insurrection in Jamaica in your last number, permit me, while differing entirely with your view of the facts of the case, to assure you that the planters will most heartily en- dorse your proposal that the island should be made a Crown colony, and that they, with you, consider that the present House of Assembly is a curse to the country, and in no way represents its
real interesta.—I am, Sir, your obedient servant, A. L.
